New arrivals for the week of September 16, 2014
The Fault in our Stars
Godzilla
Think Like a Man Too
The Roosevelts

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new arrivals are: "The Fault in Our Stars" (w/Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Willem Dafoe and Laura Dern), "Godzilla" (w/Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, etc), "Think Like a Man Too" (w/Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson, etc) and "The Roosevelts, An Intimate History" (A film by Ken Burns; w/voices of Meryl Streep, Paul Giamatti, Edward Herrmann, Ed Harris, John Lithgow, etc). To compliment last week's Marx Brothers box-set, this week we picked up Flicker Alley's amazing "The Mack Sennett Collection, Vol. One", over 50 shorts from the Keystone Film Company (w/stars like Mabel Normand, Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle, Harold Lloyd, Gloria Swanson, Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery, Harry Langdon, Marie Dressler, Ben Turpin, The Keystone Cops, Ford Sterling, Charley Chase, Al St. John, Mack Swain, Edgar Kennedy, Billy Bevan, Louise Fazenda, Eddie Quillan, and more). The rest of the new arrivals seem to be TV shows: About a Boy S1, Bones S9, Castle S6, CSI S14, From Dusk Til Dawn S1, Grimm S3, Hannibal S2, Hawaii Five-0 S4, Musketeers S1, Prisoners of War S2 and Sleepy Hollow S1. Also, a few international shows: the highly rated French police series "Braquo" (seasons 1 and 2) and four more episodes (23-26) of the Italian "Detective Montalbano" (aka "Il Commissario Montalbano"). And, Criterion released David Lynch's surrealistic nightmare, "Eraserhead" (1977). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Yen Tan's "Pit Stop" (2013), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is the top renter in our Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender section. The second most rented title is James Franco and Travis Mathews' "Interior. Leather Bar" (2012) followed by Mike Nichols' "The Birdcage" (1996; w/Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest). Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's documentary, "The Celluloid Closet", dropped to 4th but "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (2001) is back in the Top 10 -- possibly bolstered by the recent Broadway production. Lastly, Jennie Livingston's documentary about the New York's drag scene in the 80s, "Paris is Burning" (1990), rounds out the Top 10. Here are the Top Renters from the GLBT section:
1 PIT STOP (2013)
2 INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR. (2012)
3 BIRDCAGE, THE
4 CELLULOID CLOSET, THE
5 GETTING GO
6 CONCUSSION
7 CRUEL & UNUSUAL
8 HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
9 HOT GUYS WITH GUNS
10 PARIS IS BURNING
